Civil War Veterans Monument Dedicated in Putnam Veterans Memorial Park

civil war

Today Sheriff Langley attended the Dedication of the Civil War Veterans Monument at the Veterans Memorial Park in Kent.

When Carmel’s Tyler Dicembrino learned there was no public recognition of Putnam County residents who served in the Civil War, he went into action to see that this oversight was remedied. He raised the monies needed, close to $800, and received permission to have a monument made in their honor. Today was the realization of his dream. What an admirable accomplishment for Tyler at just 18 years old.

We are so fortunate to have a new generation of young people who are interested in our County’s history and bring honor to those who fought so valiantly for us to live our lives today in Putnam County.

Great work Tyler!
